Nothing happens by chance, the "bonus" as you call it was the prize. Where else are the "CIA & Friends" going to get their black budget cash?


www.theguardian.com...


In little more than a month, the lethal US bombing campaign, combined with ground attacks by its warlord allies, smashed the Taliban’s weakened defenses. But the longer-term US strategy would plant the seeds, quite literally, for the Taliban’s surprising revival just four years later.


While the American bombing campaign raged throughout October 2001, the CIA shipped $70m in cash into the country to mobilise its old cold war coalition of tribal warlords for the fight against the Taliban, an expenditure President George W Bush would later hail as one of history’s biggest “bargains”. To capture Kabul and other key cities, the CIA put its money behind the leaders of the Northern Alliance, an ethnic Tajik force that had fought the Soviets in the 1980s and then resisted the Taliban government in the 1990s. They, in turn, had long dominated the drug traffic in the area of north-east Afghanistan that they controlled during the Taliban years. The CIA also turned to a group of rising Pashtun warlords along the Pakistan border who had been active as drug smugglers in the south-eastern part of the country. As a result, when the Taliban collapsed, the groundwork had already been laid for the resumption of opium cultivation and the drug trade on a major scale.

Yep. Liberals got excited and conservatives took home the bacon.

Why would you thank Trump when he created the problem by hiring Bolton?


What problem?

Bolton served his purpose. New chapter has commenced. Bolton removed. New and improved replacement on the way for whatever period of time his particular skill set will be needed.

No problem. Get used to it. This president is not your daddy's president. And, he gets the job done, even with one hand tied behind his back with msm negativity and Democrat craziness.


The revolving door of advisors does not instil confidence, there is no stability..chaos, however much some enjoy it, is not good really.

Bolton was a sh#tty pick to begin with.

Somebody had to pay for the Taliban fiasco, that Bolton advised against.....But, this has been a long time coming.



That's what makes me laugh.

Bolton was the one that told Trump it was a horrible idea. Trump fires him, then cancels the meeting.

What really needs to happen now that the warhawk establishment following Bolton is out, Trump should nominate Tulsi Gabbard as his next National Security Advisor to the President.

Now before everyone from both sides light me up on this just hear me out.

I'm not a fan of Tulsi's domestic policies, but she has phenomenal potential in foreign policy regards and had already proven she is more than willing to deal with the harshest representatives in the world in order to bring peace. She is becoming a stronger contender in the DNC primary everyday even with the establishment DNC trashing her the same way they did Bernie in 2016.
So, if Trump where to do this and Tulsi by some miracle accepted it than Trump would have removed a potential competitor in 2020 one that could easily pull votes from his base, he would be proving he has no problem working in a bipartisan way, he would be upholding his non interventionist campaign promise, and would be far more likely to finally get a NK denuclearization deal when he doesn't have someone actively working against him not to mention a probable deal with Iran. It would also give Tulsi a real chance at enacting some of her own personal policies in regards to foreign affairs as she will never be allowed by the DNC to gain the primary anyways and would potentially set herself up for a much stronger run at the Presidential nomination in 2024.

Wins all around the board, oh and we can't forget the absolute explosion of every talking head in the mainstream media if this where to happen, that'd make it worth it by itself.

I like it. although I don't agree with her Democrat solutions for the most part , I think she would rattle some of the war mongering MIC feathers as the NSA.

Unfortunately I think Trump is likely to hire another swamp creature.
